Historic development of information theory

  • Christoph Arndt


In a short overview — which cannot include all events in information theory — we want to introduce the measures of information familiar to scientists of information theory, communication theory and mathematics. In this overview our main attention is not focused on a philosophic, semantic view of information, but is focused on the information that we are able to describe with mathematical methods and thus to apply in our theories.
